Stamford Law recognised among Asian-Mena Counsel’s Deals of the Year 2012

February 2013

Stamford Law has been recognised among the Asian-Mena Counsel's Deals of the Year 2012. The firm won an award for its involvement in the Asia Pacific Breweries (APB)/ Heineken deal, which saw Stamford Law acting for Fraser & Neave, Limited in the S$5.59 billion sale of its 39.7% effective interest in APB to Heineken. The deal was keenly watched globally and reported on extensively by international media. It is one of the largest deals ever in Singapore's history and was named by Bloomberg as one of the top 10 largest M&A transactions in Southeast Asia for 2012.

Full coverage of the winning deals and honourable mentions will be published in the March 2013 issue of ‘Asian-Mena Counsel'

  • Compensation for Breach of an Arbitration Agreement: Damages for Damages

    One of the guerrilla tactics sometimes deployed to undermine an international arbitration is a party's wrongful attempt to invoke the jurisdiction of a national court to resolve a dispute. Often this is done because the party anticipates, or can improperly secure, a favourable outcome before its ‘home' court. This may be a pre-emptive strike in anticipation of an arbitration being commenced by the other party, or it could be done to frustrate an existing arbitration. How can you effectively combat such tactics and uphold the dispute resolution process you had bargained for?
